Besides visually, how does your horsehide differ from Horween's?

I have four samples of Insurrection's new Italian, full grain, veg tanned horsehide sitting on my desk.  I also have samples of Aero’s Horween front quarter Chromexcel, front quarter tumbled Chromexcel and Jerky horsehides, and a “soft black steerhide.”  The new Italian HH is considerably more pliable than the standard Chromexcel, more pliable than the tumbled, and some where in between the Jerky and the “soft” steerhide (closer to the Jerky -- the steerhide is entirely different).  

 

The new Italian HH has much more grain than the standard Chromexcel, but much less than the steerhide -- slightly more grain than the Jerky, although this may depend on particular samples.

We're pretty excited about the new Italian hides and there are a number of Aero styles that seem like a natural fit for these leathers...

Are women's jackets typically too small to be fashioned out of the Vanson comp weight or the FQHH type leathers? I would love to have a jacket that breaks in like that Vanson Enfield pictured, but the only women's moto style jacket I see on the website is the PCL women's racer. While the jacket looks nice, the description seems to be more about the styling than the leather. Would a Vanson model B delux be too stiff for a small jacket? Would the Vanson SF collab moto work for a women's size?

Much thanks.

Women's jackets from Vanson and Aero look and feel great in the heavier leathers...there are a number of styles from both manufacturers that work well for women and can be specified in whatever leather you desire! 

 

Here are three Aero styles that can be done in the heavier FQHH...

 

Aero Women's Highwayman shown in mid-weight European steerhide:

 

 

Aero Women's A1 shown in mid-weight Seal Brown "Jerky" FQHH:

 

 

Aero Women's Cafe' Racer shown in mid-weight European steerhide:

For Vanson, the Women's Model B can be done in Comp. Weight.  Also, Vanson recently came out with their own version of our women's cafe' racer (both come from a 1960s women's cafe' racer jacket from our collection), so it can be done in any of Vanson's leathers!  Our favorite leather for this style is the Z150...it has an excellent amount of grain that comes through in the break-in, but it's a bit more pliable and slightly thinner that the Comp.Weight leather. 

 

Here's the Vanson "Villainess" shown in white cowhide (we style this jacket much tighter...the model is wearing it with full armor, so it's not shown as slim as the style actually is):

 

 

 

Regarding the Vanson/Thurston/SF model, when we get the measurements from the patterning, we'll share those and you can see if they will work for you...we've seen that a number of men's styles can be easily adapted to fit women!

Can you tell me which vanson leather color this is?

It is one of three colors from Vanson (they have many different browns, but this one has a distinct reddish-purple undertone): Wine (brown-burgundy), Walnut (dark brown with a touch of ruddy undertone) or Dark Brown (very dark brown).  Brown is probably one of the most difficult colors to represent in photos, so I can't say with absolutely certainty which one it is...
